The trial of the former commander of the so called anti terrorist unit and the son of the former Liberian president Charles Taylor, begins in Miami today.
Charles MacArthur Emmanuel, also known as Charles “Chuckie” Taylor Jr., is set to go on trial as prosecutors test, for the first time, a 1994 law making it a crime for U.S. citizens to commit torture overseas.
Federal prosecutors say chuckie poured molten plastic on the skin of the regime’s opponents, rubbed salt in their wounds and shocked them with electricity during a horrific three-year campaign of intimidation in Liberia.
the indictment also indicated that Chuckie brutalized at least seven people by pressing hot irons on their flesh, shocking them, and even shoveling stinging ants on one naked victim who was forced into a dirt pit.
One by one these assholes will pay for the thousands of lives they took, and the chaos they and their band of criminals brought to Liberia, and west Africa during their so called war of liberation. i feel no pity whatsoever for them,How dare they destroy my country, how dare they soil the name of homeland.
an eye for an eye, and i hope they all die painfully.
